    my tacometer is bouncing up and down but no real change in engine revs. Any thoughts?

    Voltage variation to the instruments. My CX has always done this (infact I'm sure they all do). The tacho needle will bounce slightly in time with the indicators flashing. No doubt it could be fixed with some serious upgrading of power wires into the dash.

    Thankyou, you mean replacing wires? ie thicker? less resistance? Should I leave it?
